Create ISO files yourself – Instructions

Today we would like to show you briefly how you can easily create ISO files yourself . We needed this to pack files into an ISO file and then mount this ISO file on a Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V server in a VM as a CD / DVD drive. This became necessary because this VM had no network connection , but we had to transfer files to the VM.

With Windows board means there is no way to convert individual files or a folder structure into an ISO file .
